The Grand Piano label continues to uncover gems of the piano repertoire. (Fanfare)

Anyone who is seriously interested in piano music should check out Grand Piano. (The Listener)

It's now two years since the Grand Piano label was launched with a mission to source and record little-known keyboard repertoire. Already boasting a catalogue of 48 discs, the label offers an enticing mix of works by relatively unknown composers and little-known works by familiar ones. There's a surprise in every jewel case, which comes adorned with either a figurative painting by the award-winning Norwegian artist Gro Thorsen or one of Tony Price's attractive studies in the play of light on water.
